To spend quality time in at least one area of every state. Quality time means exploring the area; rest stops, gas stations, airports or train stations do not count. The goal is to explore the natural and cultural environments of these regions. Each location visited has a story, pictures for my amateur hobby addiction, and maybe a piece of jewelry/art.

Heading off to See Minnesota and North Dakota

My sights are set on states 48 & 49. I am finishing the Mid-west this holiday weekend with a long trip through the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes and the Peace Garden State. With this trip, I will see major cities (Minneapolis and Fargo [kinda]), plenty of museums, a few national parks (Theodore Roosevelt and Voyageurs National Parks), some quirky art (the Enchanted Highway), some small towns, plenty of water (Lake Superior and rivers) and lots and lots of road. I estimate that I will be driving over 2000 miles to weave my way around these states. It may be hard to believe that I am giddy, but I am... I have been actively working on this list for 15 years ... finishing the contigious United States has me excited. Stay tuned... bet you don't know many people this excited to see North Dakota!
